Mr. loadstone then said: "It will afford her majesty the most sincere satisfaction if reciprocity can be arranged between Canada and the United States. But approval of this agreement is not confined to the Liberal side, but expressions quite as strong come from the Conservative party as well. Hon. A. J.
